MacDougall Pierce Construction is committed to providing a safe working environment for everyone involved in the construction process. There are 5 reasons why we have a safety program...1) Employee safety and health - Every individual has the right to work in a safe working environment
2) Reduce Operating Costs -
a) Increased Productivity - a structured safety program gives workers both confidence in their own
actions as well as confidence within their work environment. This results in greater productivity.
b) Workers Compensation Costs - Lower worker comp costs mean lower overhead costs.
c) Litigation - A structured safety program minimizes the chance of liability lawsuits.
d) OSHA Regulations/Fines - Non-compliance will result in costly fines and penalties.
3) Opportunity for OSHA Focused Inspection - If you have a structured safety program, you are
more apt to qualify for the less - stringent, "Focused Inspection", in lieu of the highly detailed
OSHA wall-to-wall inspection.
4) Increased Contract Opportunities - More and more, owners are requiring contractors to
substantiate the existence of a structured safety program.
5) Of the thousands of industries, construction ranks 3rd in the most job related accidents.
Each MacDougall Pierce field super is trained in job site safety procedures, lockout/tagout, hazard communication, specific safety policies on first aid, housekeeping, sanitation, etc., occupational injury, MSDS, and pre/post drug & alcohol program implementation. We periodically have in-house safety inspections to keep all personel continually thinking safety. This ensures program consistency, quality and maturity. We are one of a handful of "MICCS" Safety certified general contractors in Indiana.
